Vehicle Overview

The five-seat CX-7 serves as Mazda's entry in the popular compact crossover segment. Available with a choice of four-cylinders including a turbocharged engine, the CX-7 competes with the Ford Edge, Toyota RAV4 and Chevrolet Equinox.

New for 2012
There are no significant changes for the 2012 model year.

The CX-7 is comparable in size to other midsize crossovers, though it's relatively narrow and more likely than most to be called a hatchback. Exterior features include:

  • Standard power mirrors; optional heated mirrors
  • Automatic on/off headlights
  • Optional fog lamps
  • Optional xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps

The CX-7 seats up to five. The dashboard features double-decker construction, with a large information display at the windshield's base. Folding down the rear seats provides a nearly flat load floor, and the seatbacks and cargo compartment are finished in plastic. Interior features include:

  • Standard keyless entry
  • Telescoping sport steering wheel with audio and cruise-control switches
  • Optional heated front seats
  • Optional power moonroof
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional backup camera
